Paraguay played 65 minutes of the clash a man down, after captain Gustavo Gómez was sent off for a second bookable offense.

Despite their numerical advantage, the Paraguayans defended stoutly and it was not until in the 68th minute that Greece broke the deadlock through Dimitris Diamantakos.

Paraguay had offered little prior to this point but going behind seemed to inspire them, and within five minutes they were level - a tremendous goal it was too.

Substitute Montenegro found the net with an acrobatic overhead kick after Junior Alonso's long throw-in had been flicked on by Miller Mareco.

Greece will now stay in Gaziantep to play one of the best third-place teams, while Paraguay will head to Antalya to play the winners of Group E.
